Well, dear ladies, here I am convalescing from my appendix dramas and enjoying sunshine and tennis...and a little bit of crochet.
I finished this lovely little wrap cardigan/kimono for Jemimah and I am thrilled with it. The pattern, by Susanne Visch, is so easy (find it here) and each size will fit a multitude of little body shapes and sizes due to the clever wrap over fastening. I used King Cole Riot for the first time. I just love this self stripe yarn...fantastic colours and it is nice and soft too. I think this little jacket pattern is so versatile...for boy or girl. It could be made up in such a lot of different yarn combinations and trims making it unique every time.
Ready for a crochet fest?
I also started on a blanket for my sister in law. She wanted something in earthy, natural colours so I have been experimenting with how it might look. I am mad about this wavy pattern but I just couldn't get into the idea of it being a blanket in these colours....too tiger stripe I think! So I have decided on a more geometric theme - triangles to be precise. I'll let you know how that goes!
Can I just say a huge thank you for all of your kind comments wishing me a speedy recovery.....knowing so many of you in the Canyon are thinking of me certainly helped!!! xxx
